1. Describe Weistrass-Erdmann corner conditions for strong minima.
2. Minimize J(x, u)
Z
J(x, u) =
1
u2 dt

ẋ = −2x + u
(2)
with x(0) = 1 and x(1) = 0. Is your solution unique ?
3. A first order system is given by
ẋ(t) = ax(t) + bu(t)
(3)
and the performance index is
Z
1 tf
(qx2 (t) + ru2 (t))dt
(4)
J=
2 0
where, x(t0 ) = x0 and x(tf ) is free and tf being fixed. Show that the optimal state
x∗ (t) is given by
sinh β(tf − t)
x∗ (t) = x0

where, β = a2 + b2 q/r
4. Find the optimal control u∗ (t) for the plant which drives the system
x˙1 (t) = x2 (t)
(6)

(7)
with x1 (0) = 3, x2 (0) = 5, x1 (2) = 0 and x2 (0) = 0 which minimizes the the performance index given by
